Gamers love cult movies. It was only a matter of time before the '80s classic The Highlander made its way to the videogame realm. The tale of immortals who lop one another's heads off is coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this year courtesy of Eidos.
In Highlander: The Game, you play as Owen MacLeod, ancestor of the feature film's Connor MacLeod. Born in Gaul more than two millennia ago, Owen is the son of a tribal chieftain. As is the popular trend of the times, Owen's village is invaded and he becomes prisoner of the mighty Roman Empire. Forced into gladiatorial combat in Pompeii, Owen gets himself killed. Good news for Owen: he's immortal. Rising from the dead, Owen begins a journey through the centuries, learning to become an incredible fighter (and lopper of immortal heads).
